Intro
(...) The title of this exhibition underlines the specificity of contemporary jewellery, and the ambiguity inherent to a craft-based, boundary-pushing practice: the work selected is thus both alien to its tradition, and well versed in its history.(...)
Contemporary jewellery, in France and abroad, is undergoing a spectacular evolution: in recent years, it has both staked out new territories of experimentation, and claimed a pivotal position between art, design and traditional craft. The title of this exhibition underlines the specificity of contemporary jewellery, and the ambiguity inherent to a craft-based, boundary-pushing practice: the work selected is thus both alien to its tradition, and well versed in its history.

The selection for this touring show focused on the work of 17 makers - French, or working in France - who together make a convincing case for the vitality of this rather under-exposed part of the European contemporary jewellery community.

It is the first time that such a selection of contemporary French makers is shown abroad.

a project curated by christian alandete & benjamin lignel for la Garantie, association pour le bijou.
